China Kills Children, Sells Them as Food
May 9, 2012
More sensitive readers should perhaps skip this one.
Apparently Chinese pharmaceutical companies sell pills made of dead babies. The bodies are taken from miscarriages, abortions, and infants born alive but then left to die. Some fraction of these children were killed as a direct result of the Communist government’s One-child Policy.
The pills are apparently sold as some kind of alternative “health” supplement.
Sources: Hat tip to (in chronological order) Glenn Beck and Wintery Knight. Lest you wonder whether this is just some rumor, it has been covered in places like Life News and Breitbart.com (who link to their sources), but also places like this Atlantic Monthly Web site, the BBC, and The Week.
Recall that the popular Bodies museum exhibits may well have included political prisoners—that is, people whose only crime was disagreeing with the government—executed by China (NPR, ABC, Wikipedia). (See also some doubt cast on one source of that information, but even if his later story is the true one—and even if he had been the only reason to be suspicious about the sources of the bodies—there seems to be no dispute about the larger fact that China kills people and sells their body parts.)
As our country debates foreign policy, American decline, and whether the world would be better off without American influence, never forget this: Our culture is different from their culture, and our culture is superior to their culture.
